Red alert

I love red, but not Christmas-time red. If colours were people, Xmas red would be an innocent child, not an experienced adult. At this time of year, I recommend looking for alternative reds. You could try the faded or pale reds of Pink Outfitters’ Izzy Dress and The Sea Hole’s High-waisted Engineer Shorts. Or go to R.icielli, where every red item is only 25L, and snap up the Misseiling Jacket in their deep shade of sangria

As outfits go, this one is a little nutty, but if students can run around campus in shorts when it’s minus 2, Portia can go them one better in a bodysuit with a plunging neckline. Her bewbs can’t catch cold because they aren’t real. (Just like Santa Claus. But unlike global warming.) I keep coming back to this Glam Affair winter skin, which doesn’t just give your av the pink glow of healthy cold-weather exercise, but goes all out for a look that says she’s dating a polar bear.

These animated skates by eXotica are very sexy. I picked them up on a tip from another blogger at a skating rink, not the shop, so I’ve posted the URL below. Clawtooth is having a half off sale (but not on fat packs) until the end of the month, and the sale includes all the latest styles. Here, One Fine Day is Portia’s coiffure du jour.
